As we approach our busy summer season, we look forward to sharing the beauty and vibrancy of the Santa Fe Botanical Garden with you. In response to the Garden’s changing needs and input from members and visitors, we are updating our membership levels, to provide more compelling options. As our last membership adjustment was over seven years ago, clearly it is time to revisit our relationship with our core supporters. Here are the membership changes:
- We have added a new $20 Student level membership for full-time students with ID.
- We have replaced our traditional Household membership with two options – a Couple level membership and a Family Plus membership.
- The Couple membership at $60 allows two individuals unlimited access to the Botanical Garden.
- The Family Plus membership at $95 enables two individuals to bring up to two guests with every visit.
- Memberships at the Friend level ($125) and above now include the benefit of bringing up to four guests with every visit, as well as the higher level benefits outlined on our membership page.
- The Aster Society will encompass Patron $1,000 level and the Benefactor $2,500 level members.
- We are excited to announce the Leonora Curtin Society, which includes Angel $5,000 level and Monarch $10,000 level members. Members of the Leonora Curtin Society receive our highest recognition and enjoy our most exclusive benefits.
Please remember that all membership levels include our basic member privileges that can be enjoyed year round. I hope you will consider joining as a new member or renewing your membership this year. Your membership supports the ongoing operation of the Garden and provides funding for key programs: education for all ages, plant conservation and environmental stewardship, Garden shows and art exhibitions, and community service.
Thank you for your generous support of the Garden.
